Parfum #4: Velours Frais

The ultimate in evening elegance, for any occasion but especially those of stylish discernment and pure frolic. Light up the night with lively blooms of carnation, camelia blossom and tobacco flower enhanced by exotic notes of Arabian oud and spice as well as earthy saffron and sage, surrounded by sheer white amber.

 

There are those who ask me: “Marie, when you are wanting to venture out for an evening with your beau Basier la Grenouille, what do you wear?” Well ma cheres, certainement I am always dressed in black. It is perfect for any occasion, and I layer my fabrics, you see, to ensure I am the very soul of fashion. But most important for any evening is one’s perfume, and so I will share my favorite with you. Tres chamant, so sophisticated, it is the eternal allure of the feminine. And thus no matter how you may dress, with this scent you will be beautiful to everyone...especially the one who loves you.

 

Scent: Bright and light spicy carnation. 
Mood: Frolicking and fun but elegant, evening scent.

OMG I could not love this any more if you paid me! I’m a carnation ho and carnation perfumes don’t come around that often. This reads almost all carnation on me. I can tell the camellia is there softening it a bit and I know the spices are there playing off the carnation’s spice, but it’s subtle. This is not as sweet as Pinky Sweet and not as spicy or unisex as Evil In Carnation. It’s inbetween those two in tone. If I sniff super super hard, like so hard it hurts I can vaguely detect some of the other notes but it requires work on my part, so I won’t do that again. Carnation is one of my all time favorite notes so I am thrilled to have such a lovely perfume dedicated to it’s beauty. Full bottle for sure!

So glad to hear that. I had my eye on this. I love carnation and LP carnations. I'm dying for my sampler. This will be my first go. 🎉

I totally agree with Heather's review - this is primarily more of a fresh carnation scent on me and it's really lovely in that way.  I think the combination of carnation and camellia really accentuates that whole fresh floral association. The spiciness is more of an undertone so I get the "light bright" evocation which was Mara's concept for the fragrance, as well as the sophisticated mood.  Carnation lovers need to grab this one for sure!

Me too!  I am a carnation lover and have found very few scents over the years that have a true carnation note.

 

I'd never classify myself as a floral fragrance lover, but this... ((((THIS!!!!))) is so delicious.

 

Happily I also get the spices and the tobacco, and the white amber stays in the background -all good things for me.

I love LPMP Carnation.

If I had Balls or Ovums I would say this grabed me by them hard at first.

* NOTE. I slathered too liberally.

It started off a unisex Carnation, strong and a little spicy. Yes guys, try a sample. I love carnations on a man :purr: .

 

After about 15ish mins. It mellows and some of the other notes pop through. As are all these scents, the notes are seamlessly & smoothly interwoven. Carnation is the top note and stays. But, it mellows and blends into a simply georgous scent. Classy & Sophicated come to mind here. If you don't overdose. 

I get a truly amazing unisex (yes even after drydown) scent. Go anywhere with it. I want to wear it to Italy and dance in a fountain. Then I want to give a bottle to a hot Italian guy! 

Very compatible with PM. I could feel OW too. FB.

CIAO!
